As an ode to our shared admiration of a good pair of sneakers when I was invited by New Balance to design our own US 574, the first goal was to keep things classic. Having my share of super-color-filled kicks I really wanted to make something in burgundy, which was not available but then there was that grey. A grey pair of New Balance was at some point part of many college guys wardrobes along with cargo shorts (Abercrombie if you had it like that), a t-shirt and a fitted baseball cap with the tongue curved down ( sound familiar?) . Anyway these lovelies can be seen as slightly menswear inspired with a pop of neon, the words “siempre amor” (love always) embroidered on the heel as a reminder that as a motivation, a guiding force in anything in life love always wins… More angles on the flip. Design your own here.
